Advanced Notice of Upcoming Revised Program Limits

Dear Participating Lenders:

IRS and HUD recently released new income and purchase price limits.  The revised limits will apply to FirstHome/FirstDown/FirstDown Plus and HomeForward. The New Mexico Mortgage Finance Authority (MFA) is required to implement the new program limits at the opening of business on Monday, June 17, 2024, and is unable to provide lenders with more advance notice.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Revised limits will impact individual counties in different ways; while some county limits will stay the same, others will increase.  Participating lenders are encouraged to reserve funds for borrowers who currently meet both the purchase price and income eligibility requirements before the close of business on Friday, June 14, 2024. MFA cannot grant any exceptions regarding income or purchase price limits.

  • The updated income and purchase price limits for FirstHome/FirstDown/FirstDown Plus and HomeForward will be in effect for reservations/locks dated Monday, June 17, 2024, and later.

New income and purchase price limits will be posted on June 17, 2024.

Thank you for participating in MFA programs.
